About this ebook

Snow White, Rose Red

In a tiny Welsh estate, a duke and duchess lived happily, lacking only a child -- or, more importantly, a son and heir to the estate. Childbirth ultimately proved fatal for the young duchess. After she died, the duke was dismayed to discover that he was not only a widower, but also father to a tiny baby girl. He vowed to begin afresh with a new wife, abandoning his daughter in search of elusive contentment.

Independent -- virtually ignored -- and finding only little animals and a lonely servant boy as her companions, Jessica is pale, lonely and headstrong...and quick to learn that she has an enemy in her stepmother. "Snow," as she comes to be known, flees the estate to London and finds herself embraced by a band of urban outcasts. But her stepmother isn't finished with her, and if Jessica doesn't take control of her destiny, the wicked witch will certainly harness her youth -- and threaten her very life....

Picking up this book, I expected a somewhat medium well written regency romance mixed with a little magic. My expectations were entirely dashed. In Jessica, aka Snow, we have our intrepid heroine, The Lonely Ones make a wonderful set of dwarves & the Duchess is your perfect villain. Along the way I couldn't help but notice the slightly feministic touch, with the repeated insistence women could only choose between being child bearing factories or decorative. Both the heroine & the villain long for liberty & are, in their own right, independent, capable women. I liked the story's unpredictability, however, the end was slightly unsatisfactory, with some open questions. In comparison to the rest of the book it seemed like a quick fix to some plot issues. All in all, not a bad story, made interesting by mixing steampunk elements with fairy tale. The plot could have been more developed, the characters might have had a little more depth but if you're looking for sth different this is your book

This book sort of confused me and definetly pushes itself off the "normal" princess tales. With alot of mythical creature and witchcraft, but a good book to read if you wanted something different and surprising......

About the author

Tracy Lynn is a pseudonym. Liz Braswell is a real person. After the sort of introverted childhood you would expect from a writer, Liz earned a degree in Egyptology at Brown University and then promptly spent the next ten years producing video games. Finally she caved in to fate and wrote Snow, her first novel, followed by the Nine Lives of Chloe King series under her real name, because by then the assassins hunting her were all dead. Liz lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two children, and the occasional luna moth.
